Best. Weekend. Ever.

Why Camp?

Camp Augusta is about FUN with all of the activities you’d expect, but also so much more.  In a small, tight, true community set in natural splendor, campers develop self-confidence, independence, social skills (emotional intelligence), creativity, activity skills, environmental awareness and appreciation, friendships, and healthy living skills.  Campers also learn what most modern children have forgotten — how to simply play and be a kid without television, video games, cell/smart phones, the internet, canned games, or social pressure.

Our Director

Our Director has over 25 years of camp experience, as well as his Ph.D. in developmental, social, and organizational psychology.  He is solely focused on providing a fun experience that enriches lives and provides a world of good.

About Camp Augusta

 Camp Augusta was donated to the girls of Piedmont in 1931 by Edwin William Ehmann and Charlotte Ehmann.
For the past 80+ years, as the camp has developed, it has been managed by a non-profit organization. Originally serving only women of California, Camp Augusta now provides a variety of programs for all children, families, schools, youth groups, clubs and business groups from around the country and the world.

Camp Augusta has experienced a rebirth in recent years, thanks to our new director and passionate staff. We now have waiting lists for camp every summer, have made massive capital improvements throughout our site, and support over 150 different program areas over our beautiful 90 acres.
